Making classification indexes searchable in staff client
|Bug number:||Bug 6286|
|Work in progress repository:|
A client would like to be able to search for Dewey numbers in the staff client.
This can be accomplished by uncommenting "Dewey-classification 1=13" in etc/zebradb/ccl.properties and adding another <option> to koha-tmpl/intranet-tmpl/prog/en/includes/search_indexes.inc and maintaining it as a local hack.
But it seems like something more libraries might be interested in, so maybe there it's possible to find a more flexible way to do it.
First question: Several indexes related to classification are commented out in ccl.properties:
#Classification-Dewey 13 A classification number from 082 # the Dewey Decimal # Classification, developed by # Melvyl Dewey. #Dewey-classification 1=13 #Classification- 50 A classification number 086 #government-publication assigned to a government # document by a government # agency at any level (e.g., # state, national, # international). #Number-govt-pub 1=50 #Classification-NAL 18 A classification number from 070 # the US National Agriculture # Library Classification. #NAL-call-number 1=18 #Classification-NLM 17 A classification number from 060 # the US National Library of # Medicine Classification. #NLM-call-number 1=17 # #Classification-UDC 14 A classification number from 080 # Universal Decimal # Classification, a system based # on the Dewey Decimal # Classification. #UDC-classification 1=14
even though they are created by record.abs:
melm 060 NLM-call-number melm 070 NAL-call-number melm 080 UDC-classification melm 082 Dewey-classification:w,Dewey-classification:s melm 086 Number-govt-pub
Is there any advantage to having them commented out in ccl-properties?
Uncomment the indexes in ccl.properties and make it easy for libraries to decide which ones should appear in the dropdowns on the search page in the staff client. This could be done in two ways:
Make one syspref that lets a library choose which one of the indexes should be activated in the staff client search. It would probably not take long for some library to come along and want to activate at least two?
Create one on/off syspref per index.
